    The Road to Tyranny by Don Jans

    False Alarms With Coronavirus Variants


    By Melissa Martin

    “Emergencies have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.”— Friedrich August von Hayek 

    Anthony Fauci the fear-monger sounded the alarm once again with “what if” in reference to the Omicron variant. Oh no! It may be stronger than the Delta strain. Another scare tactic to shut down America? Another step towards a socialist society? Another covert scheme to strengthen control?  

    Disease and death are at your door, but the government will save you. Really? Hyped hyperbole is a political tool.  

    Run. Don’t walk. Find your dog-eared copy of George Orwell’s book. Search the boxes in the basement – the dusty cardboard carriers behind the holiday decorations. Look in the plastic bin with your high school yearbooks.  

    What now, you ask? Read it again. What is Orwell’s main message in Animal Farm? Power corrupts. The events of the story are an allegory for the Russian Revolution of 1917. The Bolsheviks overthrew the tsar in order to establish a communist regime. 

    No way socialism will defeat democracy in America. Really? Renaming “Big Daddy” government to “democratic socialism” appears to be working with the compassion, yet naive young adults.  

    No way communism will come about from democratic socialism. Really? Reread your history books.  

    One option. Take notes on Orwell’s tale and go to your local school board meeting. Use a firm voice tone as you try to persuade other parents and community members about Fauci’s future nefarious plan to destroy America’s civil liberties by mandating vaccinations for all children. Take the factual science with you. Beware, you may be labeled a domestic terrorist.  

    Another option. Cook a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. Bake an apple pie. Imagine it’s 1973. Elton John just released his album, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Relax, you got the vax. Bury your head in the sand. But what if the vaccine was not safe and has unknown long-term side effects? 

    But how does the COVID-19 vaccine stand up to variants? That’s the question. “It’s complicated,” retorted Fauci and his experts on science. “But we’re the experts and your ordinary minds cannot understand what the experts know. So don’t question us. Even if we manipulate the science, don’t you dare question us.” Really? Okay, back to soul-soothing soup and music.  

    Pharma-funded mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hero. He is anything but…That’s the message in Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s new book, The Real Anthony Fauci. Have you bought into the false rhetoric about Kennedy, Jr. without examining his fact-checked research? 

    And a final option. In all seriousness, citizens need to know both sides of the coronavirus story. Stay alert. Garner information from multiple sources. Learn the facts and question the facts based on the sources. Listen to the opinions of others and speak your own opinions.  

    Contact your representatives in the state legislature. Write a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper. Express your civil liberties. Call upon logic and wisdom. 

    And question the next strain of the coronavirus variant. Question the necessity of the constant stream of boosters for variants. Question the experts.
